Do NOT pass this one up! I was actually with Chef Wutsch when he made this one up on the fly and provided the assist preparing the dish. This definitely does not count as “healthy” but damn it was good!
I had the opportunity to hunt a couple of days before clients showed up and had a wild pig, processed and ready for the kitchen. We put this together one late afternoon while all our guest were out hunting. It ruined my dinner because I ate the whole thing!

- Chef’s Tips: Slice cheese and leave at room temperature to help warm cheese so it doesn’t take long in oven to melt cheese.
- Make sure the sauce pan is twice as deep as the cream so it doesn’t boil over and start a fire.
- Don’t fry more than two batches in oil without straining the oil so the particles “floaties” don’t ruin the looks of your finished product.
- Use any desired spice blend you prefer.
- Substitute fresh mozzarella cheese in place of Brie.
- Substitute Wild Turkey breast for Boar meat.
